They are that brave little bunch of pilgrims who pledge allegiance backwards, take 20 minutes to screw In a light- bulb and always get seated at the left end of the dinner table or must register their elbows with the police as a deadly weapon. I have first-hand information on the subject of "lefties" because my husband and I have a mixed marriage. I am an Orthodox right-hander and he is a Latter-day Leftie. It hasn't been easy, but we've made it work. He endures shifting gears with his right hand and I bear the frustration of scouring the city for left-handed bowling shoes for his birthday. He got used to shak ing hands with his wrong hand, while I put up playing tennis with him in which I think I'm hitting to his weak backhand and it is his powerful forehand. The other day as he went crazy trying to get a right- handed twist wire off the bread he snapped, "U won't always be like this. One of these days..." "Are you on your leflic crusade again where all the left- handed people unite and declare war on right-handers?" "This may seem humorous to you," he growled, "but how would you like to go through life using scissors that don't fit.. .turning off the water spigot when you think you're turning it on.. .putting stamps to the upper right-hand corner, driving on the right side of the road. . .reading a right- handed newspaper, starting the power mower on the right side and having your life dominated by a right-handed guitar. Face it! I am persecuted by right-handers!" "Will you get hold of yourself?" I ordered. "Things are getting better for left-handers and you know it. Many firms are beginning to employ left- handers. Marriages are flourishing between the hands. And the other day a right- hander even took a left-hander to lunch!" "Bigdeal!" sulked my husband. "I'll bet the knife was to the right of the plate." love . . . protecting little noses from the sun.

The TIMES-REPORTER Thurs.,Aug.1,1974 DOVER NEW PHItADEtPHIA. OHIO B-5 r Reunions' Fifty four members of the Griffith family were present at the 27th annual reunion Sunday at Dover City Park. Two births during the past year were reported, a son, Matthew John Stein, born to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Stein of Germany, and a daughter, Shannan Necole, born to Mr. and Mrs. Russell Johnson of Navarre. The latter was the youngest family member present. The Light family of New Philadelphia will have charge of the reunion July 27, 1975, at Tuscora Park. When you have three finesses to take but can take only one of them, how do you make the choice? Study today's hand and see if you can choose the right finesse. South denier North-South vulnerable NORTH 4 K642 9 WEST + QI05 V K6 0 Q982 4 J 1098 732 7 Q6432 EAST 983 J 1098 10543 75 0 4 SOUTH 4 AJ7 V AQ54 O AKJ6 4 AK South West North East 3 NT All Pass Opening lead — 4 J South won the opening lead with the king of clubs, counting his eight tricks: Two top spades, one heart, two diamonds and three clubs. He saw that a successful finesse in any suit but clubs would give him a ninth trick. Before making up his mind, South cashed the ace of clubs, led a spade to dummy's king and cashed the queen of clubs, discarding a heart from his hand. But now he had to decide. Put yourself in South's place. Which finesse would you take? As it happens, any of the three finesses will lose. But don't complain about your hard luck if you take a finesse and fail to make the contract. The point is that you have no business taking a finesse (even though you might still manage to make the contract). Just lead a club from dummy and let West win the trick. Since there are no green cards in the deck, West must return a spade, a heart or a diamond. Any such return gives you a free finesse for your 'ninth trick. The moral is very clear: Never do a job by yourself if you can get an opponent to do it for you. DAILY QUESTION Partner opens with one no- trump (16 to 18 points) and the next player doubles. You hold: Judy Phillips is honored Judy Phillips, Aug. 18 bride- elect of Donald Lantzer, both of New Philadelphia, was honored at a bridal shower July 25 in New Philadelphia IOOF hall.

A color scheme of lavender, white and yellow was used in the decorations. An umbrella centered the table. Prizes, won by Mrs. Wayne Gray, Mrs. Verne Gray and Mrs. Edward Shott Sr., were presented to the guest of honor. S-Q105;H-K6;D-Q10R2;C-J 1098. Whatdo you say? (A) — Redouble. Your side has at least 24 points, which means that the opponents can have only 16 at most. You may be able to murder the opponents at any contract and the redouble announces this pious hope to your partner.
